Some of Monty Python Made a Semi-Musical Based Partially on Life of Brian, Kind of

Also, you can’t see it, because it’s already over. Look, I don’t know. All I know is that Eric Idle — still happy to make his money of the Python legacy, no problems there — wrote a musical version of Life of Brian, called Not the Messiah! (He’s a Very Naughty Boy), much like he did with Holy Grail and Spamalot. Fine. Except it’s not really a musical, because it has no stage, but it does have singers and an orchestra, and they’re kind of acting but I don’t even know. Oh, and it was a one-night only show done in October of last year in London, so if you want to see it, you’ll need to buy the DVD next month, being released on June 8th. Nothing about this makes any sense, although it certainly feels Monty Python-esque in that regard. Here, just watch the trailer:

At least Michael Palin and the two Terrys approve enough of the thing to stop by. I’m afraid Life of Brian is my favorite Python movie by a long shot — seriously, Biggus Dickus is the funniest goddamn thing ever — so I think I’m required by nerd law to purchase this. Your own nerd mileage may very. Thanks to Greymattersplat for the tip.
